Queen Elizabeth Hospital Kings Lynn: SAFIRA - SAFer Injection for Regional Anaesthesia

SAFer Injection for Regional Anaesthesia was invented by a team of full-time NHS clinicians in a district general hospital and the patents are owned by the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

SAFIRA also puts full control in the hands of the clinician, allowing it to be a one-person technique.
